    JAMPRIP, Indonesia - Homeless earthquake survivors living in rice fields and makeshift shacks begged for food and water under a blazing sun Monday as Indonesia's death toll rose to over 5,000.

    God's Hand?

    I don't know. As long as I am not 100% for sure one way or the other, I prefer to not take a position on this.

    :rolleyes: Why exactly is God cursing them? Is the USA then cursed?

    The good reformed Dutch people had life and death control over Indonesia when it was the Dutch East Indies. They could have treated the natives like humans and evangelized them but instead treated them like slave animals.

    No, not according to Gen. 12:3.

    :rolleyes:Ahh, I see, natural disasters in Indonesia mean a curse from God, but not here in the good 'ol USA, but only because of our political ties to Israel. :rolleyes: Think I will follow Joseph's example and refrain from judgment either way .

    The theory of a curse would be because the Indonesian government has more or less turned a deaf ears to the wholesale rapes and murders of Chinese Christians by Muslins in Indoensia...

    After the Tsunami they *tolerated* our aid... They actually didn't want *any* Christian Aid getting to the people...

    That's my theory...

    Now, *if* we were, as a nation, to allow wholesale slaughter of Christians or Jews in our Nations borders I would, then, expect God to curse us...

    As much as certain people seem to hate our country... We are still a nation of laws... And, it would be just as illegal to kill muslims as it would to kill Christians... For the time being, anyway.

    Of course, then again, there is this whole thing of almost 4 decades of infanticide...but, I am sure God will overlook that as long as we support the looney pre-mil position. We must be better than those Muslims who are against abortion because we support Israel...right?

    Joseph,

    I don't feel like fighting tonight... So, I'll give you the point....

    Seeing as you believe America is a ghastly nation and has never done anything right at any time and deserves to be wiped off the face of the earth...

    I myself, happen to believe differently... I believe that there is time for one last *real* revival...

    SMM,

    I never said anything of the sort. I just don't think we are somehow immune from judgement because we support Israel. I also don't seem to have as much of a superiority complex as you do.

    Job 1:21 (ESV)
    And he said, "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord."
